Blake Lively took advantage of the pre-Labor Day summer season to drop her own hump day thirst-trap bikini pic, featuring her poolside in a short sleeved white top and sleek bottoms showing off her toned core. “☀️summer lovin ‘… had me a blast,” she captioned it, pointedly tagging her husband, Ryan Reynolds.
Whether she did it to capture his attention or to give him credit for being her photographer is not clear. Lively and Reynolds do have a history of trolling each other on social media, though, so this may be continuation of that tradition.
Lively and Reynolds are celebrating 10 years of marriage on Sept. 9. The couple have three daughters together, James, 7; Inez, 5; and Betty, 2. While Reynolds and Lively usually joke about each other in their captions, Reynolds shared a remarkably sincere (for him, anyway) post on Mother’s Day last year about the impact Lively has had on him.
“It can’t be said enough… you’re the heart and soul of every moment this family shares,” he started. “I’m grateful for the light and for the kindness you smuggle into each and every second of our lives. I see you in the eyes of our children… Every laugh. Every blink and every thoughtful moment of vulnerability. The tender grit it takes to be a mother in 2021 is an act of pure strength and heroism. Never could I have predicted anonymous airport bathroom sex would lead to this. Or how you’d hire Dog The Bounty Hunter to find me. Either way, I’m lucky to reflect a little of the sunlight you shine on all of us. Happy Mother’s Day, my love.”
